Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Why Road Trips Works

Never thought I'd find myself agreeing with a guy with the handle "Yankee" anything (huge Red Sox fan that I am) but I think you're spot on with this.

I just hapily ponied up the $20 for this latest Road Trips release and couldn't care less that it's not a complete show. I looked at the track listings, saw that they included the very best stuff from both shows (That EYES>BigRiver from Des oines is just incredible) and the bonus disc is gravy.

I rarely if ever find myself listening to complete shows, unless I'm jonesing for my "best show ever" 10/29/77 fix...so this seems just about right to me.

All I ask from Rhino is that they make every effort to make the sound on these discs as pristine as can be...if they can clean up the bugs in any way, go for it...and $20 is reasonable for all you get from the best of those 2 excellent '74 shows.
